We have a scene that interacts directly with our lower third scene (titled "Lower Third"), but also have some lower thirds in other packages deployed via Project Server. Right now, the transition logic is looking for that scene by name "Lower Third," while the other packages have descriptors in front ...

I've got with a non-looping version of this as I couldn't get it to work while looping through integers, but now it still does not work. The output is the same image being applied to both material shaders. dim ida as xpTextObject dim filea as String dim pica as xpBaseObject dim mata as xpMaterial dim ...

We pull all of our elections data through DataLinq from an xml generated by our data provider. One of the pieces of data is an picture identifier, which is four letters long (typically from the beginning of the candidate's last name). That system uses that info to find the associated .png file to use ...

We are feeding data into our elections graphics via DataLinq, and that then gets sent to a text object via Visual Logic. We would like to comma deliniate the numbers (e.g., 6182479 becomes 6,182,479) along the way. Is there a method of doing this in Visual Logic? We don't have the ability to edit this ...

Thank you so much! This was the solution I was looking for. I have not had much experience with Layer Objects, yet. I left the industry before they were a thing and now and catching up on utilizing them well. ------------------------------ Dan Jensen Operations Director WREX-TV -------------------- ...

Within my scene I have several layer objects, all used for animations in and out. Within one layer object is a quad I'm trying to have stay visible after an animation takes everything else out. As long as it's in that layer object, the animation removes it, so I moved it out of the layer object. After ...

Thank you, Garner! Going with installing the old on the designer machine for now. We're planning to upgrade everything else in a couple weeks, so this will get us by until then. ------------------------------ Dan Jensen WREX-TV Winnebago United States ------------------------------

I'm running into a strange instance where I'm designing on version 10.5, but running 6.5 on our production machines (at least for three more weeks until they're upgraded). This is causing me to have issues with the XPression codec not being recognized by the older software, as 10.5 comes with the new ...

Thank you Simon! This was the solution. I had to go through all 14 of my in/out scene directors for the lower third, but I got it working with your help! ------------------------------ Dan Jensen WREX (Quincy) ------------------------------

I have a scene that I would like to have trigger a scene director when a different scene comes online or goes offline. Specifically a small logo that lives in the bottom right needs to slide up to the top of our lower third when the lower third comes online, then needs to fall back down when it goes ...

We have a Vision 2M switcher panel, and with covid and various other reasons, are wanting to go through a deep-cleaning process. Our plan is to shut down the switcher and disconnect everything, then vacuum the insides and thoroughly wipe down the exterior and all key caps. Has anyone done this before, ...

I am attempting to add a small subset of graphics to our existing project via the project server. This is just a dozen scenes for a seasonal show we're running while continuing production on our other shows, so I'd like to reserve both our current graphics, but make this set available to use, as well. ...

We've done this a few times here. The script is fairly simple. dim valuea as xpTextObject dim valueb as xpTextObject dim inta as Integer dim intb as Integer Self.GetObjectByName("Value 1", valuea) inta=CInt(valuea.text) Self.GetObjectByName("Value 2", valueb) intb=CInt(valueb.text) ...

We connect our election data via DataLinq to an xml created by our election results software. I have a scene that shows results for up to 4 candidates. I would like to use this as a template for all races, but if there are less than four candidates, I see the first candidates loop around on the end again. ...

It seems like XPression always tracks what the highest scene # used was, regardless of which scene numbers are currently in-use. So if you created two scenes, #1 and #1000, the next scene you create will be #1001. I'm with you on wanting to be able to "reset" this counter and use the currently active ...

I've found that my newsroom prefers "checkboxes" in order to move things from left to right or control visibility of groups. Here's how I took care of them (also using the iNews plugin): I created a quad that would have zero chance of being visible. Alpha set to 0, 1x1 px in size, with position ...

Nevermind, read a little closer. It goes: FONT > SCENE > OBJECT correct? #XPression
